Each material grade has been tuned to deliver specific performance properties. D3O offers an extensive material portfolio compatible with many different production processes.

D3O technologies are based on non-Newtonian principles; in its raw form, the material's molecules flow freely, allowing it to be soft and flexible, but on impact, lock together to dissipate impact energy and reduce transmitted force.

What exactly is D3O?

D3O (that’s D3O, O not zero or D Thirty!) is a UK impact protection company that designs and markets a range of patented smart materials – also called D3O - which offer enhanced shock absorption and some of the best impact protection properties.

How does it work?

In standard conditions, the molecules of D3O flow freely allowing the material to remain flexible, soft and comfortable, but upon impact, the molecules lock together to absorb the impact and reduce the force transmitted to you. Afterwards, the molecules return quickly to their flexible state. The stronger the impact, the more the molecules react, and the better the protection.

Does the material harden on impact?

No. D3O does not go hard when it’s impacted, but the molecules lock together to spread the force and absorb it, significantly reducing any effects of an impact.

Apart from motorcycle clothing in which other markets is D3O used?

D3O develops impact absorption products for global sports, defence and law enforcement protection and industrial work clothing
